Paul J. Camire, Owner
My Dad was a self employed finish carpenter most of his life. When he left the Army, he got a job at the post office, a job with a secure future most would be thrilled to have especially in the 1950s. He, on the other hand, was frustrated because he wasn't being creative. So he left the sure thing to strike out on his own. Before he could afford a car, he'd strap his sturdy toolbox on the back of his three speed bike and head out to someone's home to build cabinets, install trim and anything you can think of with wood. On weekends, he'd take me along. Sometimes I'd watch and help, other times I'd complain that I wasn't out fishing or riding my bike but always, I had an appreciation for the fine craftsmanship. I respect my father for taking the road less traveled and pursuing his passion.
After wandering the wilds in Alaska and Montana, I returned home to New Hampshire and chose a different path for my creative outlet - metal fabrication. I've spent most of my 30+ year career fabricating custom pieces like restaurant work tables, copper roofs, platforms for those operating machinery and even a spiral staircase or two.
In 2014, I made my first rustic industrial furniture for my wife combining reclaimed wood with metal legs. Soon requests were coming in for my metal table legs and bench legs. I've sourced legs for custom table makers throughout New England, Kansas, Texas and more. and for restaurants across the country. They can be seen on tables sold in galleries. And my brackets have made several appearances on Madam Secretary!
Each piece is made by me and won't leave my shop unless I'm satisfied with the quality.
When I'm not working, you'll find me in the outdoors running, hiking the trails and mountains of NH, fishing and spending time with my two daughters and wife, Lynne.
